    I wear glasses for seeing further, but so do 4 out of the 5 people (including me)

    What was the point of that "8-year-old child" comparison? That may be the angle, but we certainly aren't placing that amount of strain on our neck.
    Yes, there is strain, but let's be reasonable. Scare tactics turn people off.
    And why is this strain suddenly a problem? We have the same posture when reading a book or magazine.

    also being on social media can get you friend but also that's where a lot of bullying happens which if bullying goes too far people can become depressed and social media has a lot of predators for kids and teens.

    I was thinking I am one of those people who hates when I leave my phone behind and I end up waiting somewhere being bored. But then I remembered I use my phone to read when I am in those situations. It is just easier than carrying a book around with me and I have a library at my finger tips. Not to mention ebooks are cheaper. I buy physical copies of my favorite series but it helps soften the blow when I come across something that I wouldn't want in my personal collections.

    I also use one of those blue light eliminator apps. Trying to make sure I get that sleep in.

    I'm able to fall asleep very easily despite my phone but I stay up until like 3 in the morning trying to read a book I like. Does that mean I'm an alien or something? These studies are bs

    Some phones or tablets have features when you can sort of change the colour scheme of the screen. Like my tablet it has a setting for a warm colouring style, would that still cause sleep issues? Also google play books has this feature when it adjusts it colour scheme based on the time of day, so that as you move over to night, the page slowly becomes like an orangey brown.
